Hello! In this article, I will tell you about replacing a passport after a divorce - what procedure, terms and what other documents need to be replaced.

Replacing a passport after a divorce in Ukraine

Any citizen of Ukraine who has reached the age of fourteen has the right to independently change his surname, as well as his first name and patronymic.

Most often, a change in surname occurs in connection with the registration of a marriage, or its dissolution. Leaving the surname of the former spouse, or retaining the one that was before marriage, is a personal matter for each person.

It should be remembered that when changing a surname, it is worth replacing the main documents necessary for life, such as:

  • the passport of a citizen of Ukraine;
  • international passport;
  • pensioner’s ID;
  • individual tax number (TIN);
  • driver’s license;
  • bank cards.

All these documents are changed on the basis of a divorce certificate issued by the registry office or by a court decision. If the citizen strongly decided to change his real name to the previous one, then you should know that these documents will also need to be replaced.

In addition, it should be noted that if a citizen wants to change his surname (return the premarital one), it is better to do this at the time of registration of the dissolution of marriage. Otherwise, after the official termination of the marriage, it will be much more difficult to change the surname. And the change will take place already on a common basis. First of all, it is necessary to replace the document confirming the identity of each citizen – the passport of Ukraine.

The term for replacing a passport after a divorce in Ukraine

Not later than one month after the registration of the dissolution of marriage, the most important document should be replaced – the passport of a citizen of Ukraine. You should pay attention to the moment from which the report of the thirty-day period begins: it is after the registration of the dissolution of the marriage, and not after receiving the certificate in hand.
